My character, Agent Echo is an assassin for a secret government organization – The Agency.

She gets debilitating migraine headaches at inopportune times, but mostly she’s kick-ass.

Echo is a photographer.  When she’s not on assignment she loves to take photos of flowers with her macro lens.  She admires the work of Georgia O’Keeffe and wishes they could have met.


“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment.  I want to give that world to someone else.  Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower.  I want them to see it whether they want to or not.”  Georgia O’Keeffe

Hokey Pokey

My parent’s engagement photo.

I don’t know where it was taken, but I love the musical notes on the walls.


What if the Hokey Pokey is what it’s all about?

The Bear Encounter

Posted on Updated on

The mermaid and I were hiking the NUMA Ridge Lookout trail above Bowman Lake in Glacier National Park.  6 miles of very steep hiking.  We took our time, eating huckleberries and enjoying the views, when we encountered a bear.

The Mermaid. Swimming in Bowman Lake in September.
Huckle-bear. Here he was eating the huckleberries along the trail.
An incredibly yummy huckleberry. I can verify that statement because I ate it, just after capturing this photo.
“Bear. Mom, bear.” That’s what the mermaid said to me. I thought she was joking, she was so calm. He was about 20 yards away from her on the path we were headed up.
Bowman Lake. Just after our encounter with the bear, we came across this stunning view of Bowman Lake and Glacier Park. If you look closely you can see our tent in the campground at the end of the lake. Just kidding, you can’t see it, but it was there.
